The finite element method (FEM) has been historically and continues to be an important computation-intensive application for the solution of a wide range of numerical simulation problems in science and engineering. The purpose of this paper is to describe recent research into the adaptation of finite element programming techniques to coarse-grained parallel(More)

Synthesis of geodetic and seismological results for the 1979 Imperial Valley earthquake is approached using three-dimensional finite element modeling techniques. The displacements and stresses are calculated elastically throughout the modeled region. The vertical elastic structure in the model is derived from compressional and shear wave velocities as used(More)
